74-77, 3rd in AL Cent

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

One of the most cherished team record in sports was broken tonight. That's right, Steve Balboni's Royals record of 36 home runs in a season, set back in the World Series year of 1985, is no more. Mike Moustakas hit his 37th -- his first since September 1 and just his second since August 15 -- to finally pass up Balboni. May the man they called Bye Bye Balboni forever remain a Royals legend.

Can the Twins hold off the Angels?

The Yankees are all but locked into a wild-card spot, while the Twins have a significant advantage over the Angels despite losing four of five. The Rangers' two-game win streak is probably too little, too late, while losing streaks by the Mariners (four games) and Royals (three) have just about sunk them.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Alex Gordon hit the 5,694th HR in MLB this season. That sets an MLB record for HR in a season, breaking the mark previously set in 2000.

Olney -- Free agent stock watch: Eric Hosmer

Hosmer will be far and away the best option at his position this winter, but there will be many, many other first-base types available if teams choose to shy away from the 27-year-old's asking price.

Eric Hosmer could see bigger payday with big October

If all you knew about this year's free agents was their 2017 stat line, you'd expect Hosmer to earn a large payday fairly easily. But a couple of "buts" stand out for the first baseman.

Indians take Central after Lindor's 'extra' efforts

Francisco Lindor hit an RBI double and the Indians bounced back after having their record streak stopped at 22 to beat the Royals 8-4 before later clinching the AL Central title with the Twins' loss to the Blue Jays.

Standing ovation for the Cleveland Indians as their historic consecutive wins streak ends at 22 games, a new AL record.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Yes, Francisco Lindor is at the plate, once again, bottom of the 9th with 2 outs, with Indians down by one run.

Royals reliever Mike Minor 3 outs away from stopping the Indians winning steak at 22-games. KC 4-3 Cleveland, bottom of the 9th inning.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Lorenzo Cain gives the Royals a 4-3 lead over the Indians in the 6th inning with an RBI single. It's only the 4th time since 8/24 (start of their historic 22-game winning streak) that Indians pitchers have given up 4+ runs.

Walk-off win pushes Indians' historic streak to 22 (1:42)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The streak is alive! The Indians win their most memorable game yet, tying it with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and then winning on Jay Bruce's walk-off hit in the 10th. Jose Ramirez set up the winning run with the best hustle double of the season. Twenty-two and counting! Fantastic drama in Cleveland with a playoff-like atmosphere. Amazing!
